see you in 2017. I have continued to be busy, busy, busy! I participated
in the Yale National Initiative again in 2012 and created a curriculum unit

Just wanted to drop a quick line mainly to thank all my MBC sisters for showing love and support during my deployment. As I write I’m sitting in my room in Eastern Afghanistan and counting the days (45 to be exact) before I’m home. As I quickly approached the 9 year mark in my Air Force career, I decided to volunteer for this deployment for 3 reasons: 1) to do my part, 2) it was good timing for our family, and 3) to make my family proud. I quickly realized, the hardest job when it comes to deployment is definitely the moms and dads left behind trying keep it all together back home. God bless ‘em! My husband Scott has really stepped up to be the best daddy to our sweet daughter Marley and for that I’m very lucky. I’m also grateful for the enormous outpouring of love and support from friends and family back home. My MBC family has kept my spirits high from their colorful rants and raves on face book to their constant well wishes. Oh, and thanks for the care packages there’s nothing wrong with scented lotions and stationary…even in the middle of a war zone! Looking forward to “homecoming” and meeting up with the girls for a well deserved cocktail!” Anthony "Thomas" Dombroski IV was born on May 21, 2010 to ALESANDRA PRICE Dombroski and Rudy Dombroski.
